obama for president, and each of these states at the state level is under complete republican control. republicans control both chambers of the legislature and the governorship. republicans are talking about using that state level power to change the rules in each of these states for electing the president. they're able to consider doing this because of the success they had in drawing up local legislative districts and congressional district seats after 2010. they drew those maps very strategically so that even if more people vote for democrats, republicans still win a majority of seats, and they're proud of it. look, republicans in late december posted this memo about their redistricting program, which they call redmap. they're bragging about not just the program, but its effect on the national elections. and that's because of republicans' vision and foresight in drawing the maps. so it's not like republicans are the only ones that have ever done this. but right now republicans are really psyched that they did this. for a very specific reason. they successfully tilted the playing fie

to the republican think-tank on tuesday about the inauguration. he said obama wants to annihilate the republican party and boehner joked about having to calm down legendary college football coach lou holtz. >> about 9:30 i get this text, the country is overwith. we're not doing this again. i already had this conversation with lou about nine or ten days after the election. he came in to speak to our 34 new members. and before he went over to talk to them, he came to my office. he is moaning and groaning. i said, lou, would you stop? we're americans. we'll figure this out. and i just spent 15 minutes giving lou holtz a pep talk. >> and that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." >>> and now for a look at the national weather, here is bill karins with the forecast. it's cold, right? >> lou holtz isn't happy all that's come out either. here's what we're dealing with out there this morning. snow has made its presence in the washington, d.c. area. we haven't had a lot over this winter period, especially think morning from washington, d.c., southward driving through virginia to fredericksburg, al
society, a group of modern republicans. he describes an awfully sinister motive to president obama these days considering the fact that the republican party hasn't needed much help in its recent collapse. boehner is not alone. mouse ja mort whip kevin mccarthy sees the same plot by the democrats. >> this person's main goal is to continue to try to break the republican party. he's out of touch with where america is at with what he's trying to do. >> come on, kevin. all of a sudden the democrats are sitting back in the back room conniving how to take the republicans apart. considering the republicans made it their mission to stop obama at all costs it's fairly rich they accuse obama of using the same tactics against him. feehery, you're already laughing, because the idea that the republican think there's a big cabal of democrats that sit around and meet and they're saying why don't we get the republicans to stay stupid things about black america, against latinos, come out against immigration reform and screw up any chance of being a majority party again and it's all the democrats. ho
, they should be -- >> do you agree with john boehner that barack obama is trying to annihilate the republican party? >> he see as splintered republican party and he is going for the jugular and any smart politician would. he's being wise tactically. >> is part of this payback for comments that mcconnell made about his top job being to make sure the president wasn't re-elected? >> you could look at it that way. if you asked the president he would say he believes these things. after his inaugural address rahm emanuel asked him where did that come from and why did you decide to give that speech with those points we talked about. the president said i decided to say things that i really believe in. he's a second-term president. he doesn't have to run for re-election. we can talk about these policies. president didn't do women in combat. he didn't lift a finger on climate change or push hard on immigration and gun control in his first term so he's a second-term president who doesn't have to face voters and these are things he wants to bring front and center. how much will he follow-up? we'll see. t
their children. >> ifill: but sparks flew when senate republicans accused the obama administration of deceiving the nation by initially suggesting the benghazi attack was something other than terrorism. senator ron johnson of wisconsin: >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact... >> but could-- but, you know... >> ...and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> and-- with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. now, honestly, i will do my best to answer your questions about this. but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. >> ifill: republican john mccain
on the republican party looming in president obama pfsz second term? take a listen to what speak eer john boehner said before a republican think tank thursday. >> we're expecting here over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration, as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. and let me just tell you, i do believe that is their goal, to just shove us into the dust bin of history. >> to shove us into the dust bin of history. joining me now is freshman congressman, a democrat from calf camp. he narrowly beat out a republican to become the third american-indian congressman in history. we have all heard this broad plan and the goals of the president, wanting to pass immigration reform, also now freshly wanting to tackle gun violence in this country and get a handle on the national debt that seems to be an ongoing problem, but what do you think when you hear as a freshman congressman that the speaker of the house thinks president obama has a master plan to aannihilat the republican party? >> first, it'sigate to be on. the president laid out an ambitious agenda that is in line wi
. and thanks to obama care, we might live to see it. >> finally, missouri republican anne wagner just took over todd aiken's seat in the 113th congress. yesterday, she played up her status as a washington outsider when discussing budget negotiations. >> i'm a freshman. i'm new. ifgs sworn in just three weeks ago today as a new member of the 113th congress. i don't think how they do things in washington, d.c. >> but if the name anne wagner rings a bell with you, it's because she was for four years co-chair of the republican national committee. i wonder if it would have played well with the bush campaign if she would have informed them back then that she was clueless about how things worked in washington. wow. still ahead, president obama's inaugural address left some sort of left wing manifesto. far out of the american mainstream. so why do so many mainstream americans agree with everything that the president put forward in his speech on monday. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. do you make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time? ♪ or help doctors turn bil
with john boehner that barack obama is trying to annihilate the republican party? >> i think he sees a splittered republican party and he's going for the jugular and any politician in that position would. >> so you think it's a smart move? >> i mean, it's certainly savvy. the republican party is in a bit of disarray right now and certainly don't have the upper hand the president does. so he's being wise tactically. >> is part of this payback for comments that mcconnell made about his top job being to make sure the president wasn't re-elected? >> well, i think part of it is. you could look at it that way. if you asked the president he would say he believes these things. i'm actually told after his inaugural address, his former chief of staff, now chicago mayor, rahm emanuel asked him where did that come from and why did you decide to give that speech with those points we talked about. the president said i decided to say things that i really believe in. he's a second-term president. he doesn't have to run for re-election. we can talk about these policies. you know, the president didn't
is trying to annihilate the republican party. that's a strong word. but does this president see an opportunity? i'd be interested in the congresswoman's opinion. you can't find many democrats who think that president obama worries about the democratic party, 10, 15, 20 years down the road. but you will find a lot of democrats who say if you can turn the obama coalition into a democratic coalition, the democrats will have built in on the national stage what ronald reagan had for 20 years and republican party had after ronald reagan on the national stage. this coalition, if he can transfer it over, it spells trouble for the republicans. >> congresswoman, what do you think about what john king is saying? >> i'm not privy to the president's processes and how he came up with the decision. all i can tell you is women have been dying and fighting and bleeding for this nation in combat roles in iraq and afghanistan. they may not have had those jobs specifically other than aviation, my branch of service, but they've been fighting in combat and engaged in combat action. i think the last t

you've got to pov both ends this is what president obama calls balance and what the republicans call nonsense because it involves raising taxes. i think you have to do bovment i think you have to have more revenue and you have to cut back spending. >> susie: let's say congress doesn't do that. what happens next? explain to people what happens next. >> i think the real risk is that we come to a showdown in march when the current stopgap budget ends and we face the government shutdown. people will lose services. people will lose jobs. and there will be a fiscal contraction, on top of the ones that we've already put in place. and that's not great for the economy, for sure. >> you know, and this whole conversation about a budget and the deficit and all of that. it's all about raising taxes and cutting spending. and there's no discuss about growth. and that is what americans really want. growth and jobs. what do we have to do to get growth? >> well, the badh6+suz there, susie s that while higher growth is by far the best remedy, it's very hard to put if into effect. in a sizable way. you

that president obama's focus is to annihilate the republican party. is that the collective viewpoint here in the republicans in the senate or not? >> greta, i've seen a number of presidents in their second terms, i've seen president reagan and president clinton in their second term and president bush, jr. in his second term and there's always an outreach starting with the inauguration. look, we've got to work together. obviously, it was a very confrontational speech that the president gave that i think would have been more appropriate if he feels that way at the state of union as opposed to an inaugural speech. i think you can lend credence to the belief that the president of the united states want to regain a majority in the house of representatives and in order to achieve that he has to split the republican party, particularly in the house and so i regret that i didn't hear one word from the president about it's time we all sat down and worked together and addressed these issues that are confronting the nation, but it is what it is. that means that we're in for a pretty rough couple of
. >> and i've heard this from other republicans, who quietly go, you know, we could have made obama care better, as far as the republicans were concerned, but we chose not to. chose to fight it and see if they can kill it. now they can't kill it and now they're stuck with legislation that they don't like t all, and they had no, and they advocated their chances of getting it on there. >> yeah, sounds like ryan didn't want to do that again. >> i've got to give props to certain republican moderates. outsiders, of course, david frum, david brooks, people like that, who were saying all along, you know, hey, engage in this debate so you can at least shape obama care, so that it won't be, not as onerous to conservative tastes as obama has in mind, then decide to do it all or nothing. and they wound up getting nothing, because now they are going after a program that is established and gaining popularity. and i think that -- i'm waiting to see how quickly the tea party folks get institutionalized, as they say in prison life. in other words, realize that they are here to get something done, not ju
saying president obama wants to an annihilate the republican party. all of that in the next half hour. i want to ask you right now what did you think of the inaugural ceremony. haven't seen you since and the president's inaugural address? >> some quick takeaways better address than in -- in 2013 than in 2009 because -- this is where the shortness helps because you can get a point. he wanted -- he laid out his broad ideals of what he believes in. and actually that's fine. first time around, it was too much of a list. i want to do this, that. you don't need it, you got the state of the union february 12th. it was -- it was very -- as a lot of people agreed with analysis i have and many others, it was, i think finally a tribute to the people who brought him to the dance because he talked about the very progressive and liberal ideals that he wants to be engaged in his second term. that's a quick take away. it also -- in a sense that speech was a tribute to the people who helped re-elect him. so often president barack obama's career, he realized he had locked in his support they had nowhere t

. >> that is saying something, my friend. >> exactly. >>. >> we keep asking whether the republican party will come up with a new idea? the biggest idea is that president obama is trying to uphold the soviet -- which was adopted in 1977 and says, among other things, in article one, the union of soviet socialestist republics is the socialist state of the whole people, expressing the will of intdz of the workers, pheasants, and nationalities of this country. >> if we're most worried about getting sent to the goulage, check themselves in reality. i think there is something to their point which is that obama is not trying tore anile ate the republican party, but he is trying to break a fever. i mean, he is sick of dealing with guys that are obstruct and who he is unable to do business with, and he is trying to create a different set of circumstances where they come out of this next election with a different understanding of this political incentives? >> aren't they doing a fairly effective job of putting themselves in the dust bin of history when they have policies on everything from gay rights to voter i
